Financial resources

Origin of the funds allocated to our projects

Annual budget

The annual budget of Terre des Hommes Suisse represents an estimated 6 million Swiss francs. Two-thirds of this total amount result from donations, bequests, contributions and fundraising events; one third comes from public funds. The fundraising actions we carry out in Switzerland follow a strict code of ethics, guaranteed by the Zewo label.


The funds we receive to support our activities and our development and education projects principally come from:

• our newspaper, sent four times a year to all our donors;

events we organize;

• fundraising actions;

• subsidies from the State and municipalities of the Geneva canton, through la Fédération Genevoise de Coopération, Swiss solidarity and the SDC;

private donations;
